    The most authentic Sichuan restaurant

    Be ready to line up to get seated if you don't make a reservation.

    Overrated

    Am I the only one that does not think the food here is that great? I've only ordered from here twice but both times it has been mediocre. This soup dumplings are only ok and do not compare to Joe's Shanghai in Chinatown. The other dishes I've tried have not tasted authentic.

    Great food - Poor Service and Atmosphere

    This is among the best chinese food I've ever had. Try the soup dumplings. Just beware, the service isn't great and delivery can be very slow.

    Poor Service

    The service at this restaurant is poor and I wouldn't go back because of it. The food is very good, however. Order take out b/c you don't want to deal with the service. Our waitress started arguing with us when we told her that she delivered the wrong food to our table. We politely said that it wasn't what we ordered and she started yelling and telling us that we were wrong and to stop lying! It was almost funny... I have never been treated this way in a restaurant and the funniest part was to watch the table next to us try to flag her down to tell her that is was their food. People make mistakes, but I don't enjoy being yelled at when paying money for dinner. It is too bad because this would be a great spot if they could do something about the service.

    A helpful guide to the amazing menu

    Being a big fan of authentic Szechuan cuisine, this place is definitely the best Chinese in NYC. The head waiter at my favorite San Francisco Szechuan restaurant turned me onto it when I moved here. My friends & I go here about 2-3 a month. Anyone intimidated by the menu, take note of these recommendations: soup dumplings, 5-spice beef, cucumber salad, cold garlic chicken, ma-la beeef tendon, dry-fried string beans, water-boiled beef, auzhou chicken, stir-fried potatoes, beef w/ dry bean curd. I've never had trouble w/ the service but it could be because of my speaking Mandarin. Don't take it personally, just be assertive & ask for what you want. It's well worth it. Enjoy!

    Inflation

    Price has gone up. Quality/Portions have gone down. Too bad b/c I used to order from them twice a week. Not anymore.

    At least they get you out quick

    The food here is very good, and I'm lucky enough to live nearby--so I can get take out and avoid the hurried service. I've seen them literally clear plate away while you're eating!
